There is some good news today for fans, performers, and production personnel, when it comes to the revivals and online versions of Prospect Park’s All My Children and One Life to Live, and it comes from NATAS  (National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences) and its new rule changes for the Daytime Emmys!

One of which defines how many episodes a series must have to be eligible for inclusion in all the major daytime drama categories from here on forward.  These changes have now been approved and implemented for the upcoming 2014 Emmy campaign!

According to NATAS and being announced today: “Daytime Drama programs which have produced at least 35 original episodes in the calendar year of 2013 will be eligible to enter the same category as the Network Daytime Dramas.  This will result in Prospect Park’s One Life to Live and All My Children competing against The Young & The Restless, (CBS) The Bold & The Beautiful, (CBS) General Hospital  (ABC) and Days of Our Lives (NBC).  All of the actors and crafts people on these shows will also be eligible to compete in their appropriate related categories.”

In addition for web series that do not meet the minimum requirement of 35 episodes there is also a new category adopted for them named “Outstanding New Approaches Drama Series”.  So, here is where you could see shows such as Venice, etc land a nomination.

Finally, for the first time, there will be a category in the 2014 contest honoring “Entertainment News” programs which have not had a specific category to enter in the Daytime Emmy Awards. This category will honor programs covering the entertainment industry with a focus on human interest, popular culture and celebrity gossip and interviews. Programs such as the syndicated Entertainment Tonight and Extra are two examples of “Entertainment News” programs.  Moving forward, these “Entertainment News” programs may choose to enter this new Daytime Emmy Awards category or enter the Primetime Emmy Awards in the “Outstanding Informational Series or Special” category, competing with a variety of different kinds of shows.  Programs entering in this genre may enter in only one competition; those choosing to enter in the Primetime category would not be eligible for the “Entertainment News” category in Daytime Emmy Awards.

David Michaels, Senior Executive Director, Daytime Emmy Awards stated on the category changes,“I am very pleased to include these new categories in the Daytime Emmy contest.  I strongly believe that every broadcast entity should have a chance to compete for an Emmy Award in a true peer to peer competition.”

So what do you think about seeing your favorites from AMC and OLTL getting to participate in the Daytime Emmy process? Who do you think deserves a nomination? There were some powerful performance in season one of AMC and OLTL! What do you think about all the other rule changes?
Weigh-in!

Excellent news! I don’t watch OLTL, but All My Children was doing some really good work last season – I can’t wait for season 2!!

I hope they both win because as of now it looks like prospect park has cancelled One Life to Live and even All My Children season 2. ;-(

Award shows are a joke- whether music,television, web or movies– but I guess if you are into that kind of stuff and you’re a performer or professional in the business and you need a statue to boast your ego; to have someone tell you how “good” you are, which is subjective– then I suppose this is good news for some.

Even when they were on ABC, neither “All My Children” or “One Life to Live” sneaked in many Emmy nominations, especially in their last ten years.

This is slightly positive news but I still expect to see “General Hospital” and that Gawd-Awful “Young and the Restless” duking it out for most of the prizes. Yawwwwn.

I don’t understand your need to be sarcastic — I fully acknowledged if you like that sort of thing this would be good news. If have grown cynical of these awards show is because most understand the process by which artists are recognized is flawed at best, or at worst corrupt. But I will admit perhaps the crack about it being all about ego for the artists involved was uncalled for– I was just thinking of one actress who has won multiple times yet still puts her name in year after year– even Oprah had enough sense to stop submitting… Read more »

The rich and famous need us ordinary folks support and even more recognition for the work they do, after all acting is so difficult. It won’t really matter anyway, OLTL and AMC aren’t coming back anyway. Since there are only 4 soaps, it is really an award anymore? Sarcastic, moi? LOL 😉

Looking forward to Debbi Morgan, Darnell Williams and Sal Stowers getting acknowledged by their peers, if only with a nomination but hopefully a win or two or three. The Emmys were becoming comical with only four shows eligible. It makes winning with hardly any competition a joke. Now at least there’s something to be said for winning if there are six shows in competition.

With the with the exception of Erika Slezak’s award winning performances ,OLTL was always overlooked when it came to awards. Awards and award shows just seem to be politics not who did the outstanding job.

OLTL has been my favorite show since 1986, and while a few crumbs have been thrown here and there (the 2002 Drama Series Emmy win, the increased ratings after the cancellation announcement, the primetime episode in 1998and the promos around it, etc.) over the years, it is my opinion that OLTL has been sorely overlooked (and treated like a stepchild of ABC) in a lot of areas (promos, appearances on other shows, etc.) for a LOOOOOOONNNG time.

Alex
Guest

I agree! ABC always treated OLTL like an unwanted bastard child they were embarrassed to admit was theirs, much like a character on one of their soaps, even though IMO it was their best soap. I can’t stand Erica and AMC, although the new version is much better. And GH is plain awful. The Emmys have always overlooked OLTL, instead they like to award their favorites like BB and YR, which IMO are garbage. What is wrong with Steff and Hope? Now PP is treating OLTL with the same disrespect ABC did. It makes me sick. 😉

One more thing…..PP & ABC or whoever just get your act together and put AMC and OLTL back into production again!

You both have done one thing we fans can do. Comment on any and every article that mentions any soap and share those articles with everyone you can. Our voices have been heard and we need to continue to be heard!
And it wouldn’t hurt to watch both shows again on Hulu…

I’ve asked Michael Fairman & others about the production status of AMC (it was supposed to have started up this week, I believe), but have not received any responses about it. Losing TK will be a hurdle for AMC, without a doubt, but if they can get MEK back for more than just a few shows, they might have some good ratings.

CTwildheart

OLTL is shelved indefinitely, due to the ongoing contractual lawsuit between abc/d and PP.

AMC is still on hiatus, they have had two dates pass when they were supposed to resume production. Many actors have said they are hearing they will resume after the first of the new year – but nothing is firm yet. I am still hopeful.

If OLTL couldnt win best soap for its final year on ABC, i doubt the online version would win unless there is an award for how many times they said s..t in one episode… The begining wasnt good…OLTL didnt improve until the end…and Natalie’s scream and look of terror was sooo bad i wanted Alison to knock her out!!! I hope im wrong but i dont think there will be a second season…

I don’t think is fair to the regular TV soap operas that produce and deliver 5 episodes a week. It is unfair to the actors, the production staff and the crafts in these daily programs. These daytime dramas, i.e. AMC, OLTL and web series; should be judged in a separate category similar to what NARAS (Recording Academy) has done with digital downloads, etc.

it’s totally fair, look at House of Cards it won Emmys. it’s like every other show on television

They said similar things about cable programs when they first started because of the different production values. Yet they all compete against the regular network shows.

Well I think many of us are just so completely frustrated and bewildered by Prospect Park’s deafening silence regarding the status of either ALL MY CHILDREN or One Life to Live that even good news is overshadowed by these emotions.
Why can’t Prospect Park simply issue a statement?

Days of our Lives should once again receive the top honor! Still the most innovative soap on air!! Edgy and entertaining!!! DAYS delivers daring daytime drama delisiously!!!! Have fun; play in the sand!!!!!

I disagree with u..Thank you for Prospect park in doing something nobody, no network or production team would have ever done AND that is to revive our beloved shows somehow and somewhere..PP is taking baby steps; this is a work in progress new concept, so I think they will not just give up on this only after the 1st season.

Prospect Park holds the rights to ALL MY CHILDREN for almost a full decade from what I understand. They may bring the show back for a “Season 2” if the financial backing is there, and if other matters are resolved. So, unfortunately, there is no way to know when and if it will return, and what actors will be available. Obviously, if the plan is for the show to be back in January, they would really have to get production dates moving along, and I don’t see that happening. Evidently, all the Actors and people involved with TOLN / Prospect… Read more »

I think if PP could combine the actors from AMC and OLTL into a 5 day -1hour show, it could be a great show provided it was written well. They could take AJ and Miranda back down to appropriate ages and bring in the younger people from OLTL. Let Blair run the coffee shop instead of that awful nightclub or at least make the nightclub not so sleazy. I would really like to have Krystal running the coffee shop. Jesse and Bo could run the police department. We’ve got David ,Angie , and Joe being doctors. I think these shows… Read more »

Yes, I’ve been saying it for years, they should combine the characters since Pine Valley is not far from Landview, and the show would be (working title) ALL MY CHILDREN HAVE ONE LIFE TO LIVE – Obviously I don’t mean that as a true name for the show but they could title the show something else and keep the familiar characters from both shows. Heck it wouldn’t be any worse than constantly showing people dancing at SHELTER on the recent One Life or having everyone having business meetings at Jane’s Coffee Shop on ALL MY CHILDREN. With a little imagination… Read more »

ABC looked into combining both shows to cut costs several years before they were cancelled. There were several crossover story lines broadcast like the baby swap with Kevin, Kelly and RJ, but the idea failed at that time. But maybe the time has come.

BTW we had a game whjile watching to find the same set in Llanview and Pine Valley. Coffee shop=Coffee shop. Dorian’s house=Chandler’s house. Bo’s office=FBI gal’s office. Matt’s apartment=Pine Valley Police. And so on. lots of fun cause the plots were so boring. 😉

We need working titles from fans who want to see both shows combined.

Maybe they could call it “One Life in Pine Valley” ~ they really could easily combine the two shows, the sets are pretty much the same anyway and Jesse could be called in to investigate the terrible fire that happened at SHELTER – it would be a great way to get rid of SHELTER and then gradually mesh the characters from both shows together. This would appease fans of both One Life and AMC and it would be a whole new show.

Ryan shared: “It’s been a very difficult and emotional day for all of us at Live. Kelly, I know a tough weekend for you especially because you worked with our dear friend, a friend that passed away over the weekend, Regis Philbin. A legend on television. A best friend to so many of us who didn’t even know him, across the country.”

Ripa, co-hosted Live! with Philbin for 11 years, said mentioned that she and her husband Mark Consuelos were lucky to have their children surrounding them over the weekend when they learned of Philbin’s death.

Through her tears, Kelly expressed:  “As people get older, you always know that certain things are inevitable, and passing away is one of those things, but Regis is one of the people that we all believed, I think, would somehow figure out a way around the inevitable. It was not in the cards.”

Meanwhile over on NBC, Kathie Lee Gifford appeared on the Today Show remembering her enduring friendship and working relationship with Regis. Gifford co-hosted Live with Regis and Kathie Lee for many years.

Overcome with emotion, Kathie Lee recalled her final visit with Philbin and his wife Joy during a visit to the East Coast. Gifford now lives in Tennessee.

Gifford shared how she called The Philbins and said, “Can we get together, can we have some lunch?’ So they came over about two weeks ago,  We just had the best time.”’

However, Kathie Lee noted after they said their goodbyes:“I just thought to myself, ‘Lord’, is that the last time I’m going to see my friend?’ Cause he was failing, I could tell.  I was just so grateful the Lord gave me that final time.”  She also shared moments with her talk with Joy after Regis’ passing, where Joy said,”Kathie he hadn’t laughed in a long, long time.  I was so worried about him.  The day that we came to have lunch with you was the last time I heard him laugh.”

On their on-screen partnership, Kathie Lee said of her time with Regis: “We always respected each other’s opinions so highly. You know, in all the years we were together, we never had one cross word.”

Watch below the segments from Live with Kelly and Ryan and The Today Show with Kathie Lee below as they remember and honor Regis Philbin.
